History of Singapore Changi Airport
Changi Airport replaces the old Paya Lebar Airport, which was the third civilian airport in Singapore after Seletar Airport (1930-37) and Kallang Airport (1937-55). The idea to relocate from Paya Lebar goes back to 1972, but at that time the decision was to expand the airport. This did not materialise, as the 1973 oil crisis, which affected air travel, forced a review of the plan.
In 1975, the government made a decision to build a new airport on the eastern tip of the island, away from areas of urban growth. Much of the airport would be sited on reclaimed land.
Construction of Changi Airport was the biggest construction project in the history of Singapore. Work began in June 1975, even as the Paya Lebar Airport was expanded to meet immediate demands. The Changi area was formerly swamps and wetlands. These were cleared and some 40 million cubic meters of seabed sand was filled in.
Foundation stone for Terminal 1 was laid in August 1979. It includes the iconic control tower, which stands at 78 m (256 ft) in height. On 1 July 1981, the first flight to Changi Airport touched down at 7:00 am. It was a Singapore Airlines Flight 101 with 140 passengers from Kuala Lumpur.
In November 2005, Changi Airport became the first airport outside Europe to receive the Airbus 380.
